reno progress |
on our first week long trip through northern italy, we pretty much just hit the road in mirukus original state. we threw in a bed for the time being and loaded up our gear.
in a week, we are planning to leave for three weeks. whereto, we are still undecided.
we knew however, we wanted to achieve some progress in terms of the renovation.
so far, we took care of all the rust inside the van, we painted the floor with a rust protection primer, treated the worst spots with fluid film, and gave miruku an all over new coat of fresh white paint.
we covered the ceiling, sides, and floor with sound damping alubutyl, we insulated the underside of the floor plate, the wheel wells, and the ceiling panels with armaflex, and laid a linoleum floor on the top side of the floor plate.
we cut a new piece of flooring for the cab area, insulated and covered three of the side panels with fabric, and in between it all, miruku got a new pair of hiking boots.
it's been a lot of work up until now, with late nights after a full days of our regular jobs, but seeing the van coming together as a home is three times as rewarding.
